But I marvel at how that man sneezes *exactly* the same way, same pitch, every time!

funny, but gets redundant...
...especially all the sneezing noises at the end.

The hero of this film can't muster a sneeze when required, so the narrator's arm comes into the frame and shakes a substantial amount of pepper all over the poor fellow's head.
NO, really, a LOT of pepper -- like three or four cups.

Classic public information film
I've seen this a few times on TV, it's great to have stuff like this on the archive.
After some of semi-relevant slapstick, we are treated to my personal favourite public information film star spreading disease and pestilence to his fellow men via the most implausible-sounding sneezes ever recorded, "WHOOOF! WHOOF! WHOOF!".
Then, the stern and very 1940s narrator grabs the man and sits him down for a lesson in the correct employment of a handkerchief.
This man's dopey facial expression is priceless, and the film is well worth watching just for that and the WHOOF sound effect.
